Edouard Burgeat

Born in 1988 in Paris. Lives and works in Paris.

Edouard Burgeat has a diversified practice through which he explores the memory, collective and individual, as well as history and its paradoxes by addressing subjects as diverse as varied.

These pieces between photography and sculpture are made with pieces of broken marble, collected in India. They come from a slum where workers and their families live during the construction of new buildings for wealthier people. The material used is the remaining marble from the site, the unused falls and surplus, on which the artist's analogue photographs are manually transferred. The photographs themselves are images of the people living in these slums, their families and their habits, highlighting the humble souls on this precious material that they work and then abandon each day without measuring its value. A tribute to these nomadic men and women immortalized in stone.
